Red Burgundy Flash Sale!
December 12, 2017
A Note from Sergio

Happy holidays to the Burgundy lovers in the house! Almost a decade ago, I decided to get serious about selling Burgundy. On its surface, this move might feel brash for a company with "Italian Wine" in its title, but the truth is that the line between Italian and French (or Italian and Spanish, or Italian and Slovenian, or even Italian and North or South American) had always been somewhat imaginary. For one thing, I'd stocked IWM's shelves with Champagne virtually from the first day we opened our doors. For another, winemakers have been borrowing protocol and stealing vine cuttings from one another for centuries. Why wouldn't I sell Burgundy? If it's authentic, delicious and real, it's a wine that belongs at IWM--and in your glass!

Today I'm delighted to announce a flash sale on more than 200 in-stock red Burgundies, both 750ml bottles and large formats. It's an embarrassment of wine riches--these are carefully sourced wines that articulate their terroir, traditions and typicity with loving care. I chose this list of Burgundy wines so that there would be something for everyone, and these wines range in style, price point, and appellation. Yet these bottles share one important thing: they're good enough to represent IWM. Mix your red Burgundy case (or more) and spend the holiday season sharing these fine wines with the people you love!

Enjoy!

Jaboulet Hermitage La Chapelle 2009 750ml
Jaboulet Hermitage La Chapelle 2009 750ml
Price: $349.00

Deriving primarily from Le Meal and Les Bessards vineyards, with a touch of Les Roucoules fruit, this dark, inky, almost opaque ‘09 Hermitage oozes across the palate with notes of brambly dark fruit, au jus, exotic spices, smoke, umami and pencil lead. Silky, viscous, rich and opulent in the mouth, this La Chapelle nonetheless has outstanding structure, freshness and balance--simply put, it’s an exquisite Hermitage and it shows that winemaker-owner Caroline Frey is at the top of her game. The 2009 vintage clearly makes evident that Jaboulet is back on track with some dramatic changes; selections are stringent and yields have been significantly reduced from their typical 8,000-10,000 case production to a mere 2,000 in 2009. The results are more concentration, purer fruit and more structure--in fact, this may be the greatest La Chapelle since 1978. more info
Joseph Drouhin Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru 2011 750ml
Joseph Drouhin Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru 2011 750ml
Price: $699.00

Intense, burly, structured, and vibrant, this ’11 Clos de Bèze bursts with brooding, sauvage notes, earth, exotic spices and rich, brambly wild berries. This is a very broad-shouldered wine that will need some time in the cellar for enjoyment, but with time, this massive wine will mellow, tame its tannins and become a total knockout. Joseph Drouhin’s Clos de Bèze parcel is just .325 acres, but this tiny clay, chalk, and gravel vineyard makes mighty wines. After vinifying with only natural yeasts and macerating for about three weeks in temperature-controlled stainless steel, this wine ages for 14-18 months in oak barrels, 20% new. more info

Jaboulet Hermitage La Chapelle 2009 1.5L
Price: $725.00

This dark, inky, almost opaque ‘09 Hermitage La Chapelle oozes across the palate with notes of brambly dark fruit, au jus, exotic spices, smoke, umami and pencil lead. Silky, viscous, rich and opulent in the mouth, this La Chapelle nonetheless has outstanding structure, freshness and balance--simply put, it’s an exquisite Hermitage and it shows that winemaker-owner Caroline Frey is at the top of her game.

Dugat-Py Mazis Chambertin Grand Cru 2010 750ml
Dugat-Py Mazis Chambertin Grand Cru 2010 750ml
Price: $899.00

Classic, expressive, and stunning, the ’10 Mazis Chambertin is a master class in winemaking. Awash in spice and earth, this ’10 Mazis Chambertin bursts with red and blue berries, sauvage notes, smoky minerals, and tantalizing underbrush in a broad-shouldered and muscular profile. This wine swaddles the palate with velvety tannins as it builds to a lingering, lasting finish--this wine rewards Burgundy connoisseurs with near perfection. Deriving from the domaine’s tiny Mazis Chambertin parcel of 70-year-old vines grown in clay and limestone soils, the grapes fermented with whole clusters, and the wine aged in barrique; in 2010, Dugat-Py made fewer than 80 cases of this intense, sinuous Burgundy. more info
